Who is calling himself the Red Hood now? Although the Joker once tormented Gotham City under that moniker, that is definitely not the case this time. There is something tantalizingly familiar about this Red Hood, but wasn't he killed by the Joker? You'll just have to watch to discover who he is...

From official release/information:

Product Description:
Batman faces his ultimate challenge as the mysterious Red Hood takes Gotham City by firestorm. One part vigilante, one part criminal kingpin, Red Hood begins cleaning up Gotham with the efficiency of Batman, but without following the same ethical code. Killing is an option. And when the Joker falls in the balance between the two, hard truths are revealed and old wounds are reopened.
